Due to persistent concerns surrounding the heavy fog that has been present in the early mornings and late evenings at the Uttar Pradesh Junior Hockey World Cup Men Lucknow 2016, the FIH, in consultation with Hockey India and our global broadcast partner Star Sports, has made the proactive decision to make adjustments to the match schedule.

With the existing adverse weather conditions set to continue, the FIH felt it was important to review the schedule in order to minimize any future disruption.

This evening’s match between India and Canada will be brought forward to 18:45 hrs IST. For all subsequent days, the final match of the day will commence at 18:00 hrs Indian Standard Time (UTC +5:30). To achieve this, two of the pool matches – England versus Canada (Pool D) and Australia versus Korea (Pool A) – and will now be played on Tuesday 13th December, which was originally the designated rest day. The updated match schedule can be found by clicking here.

The full results, standings, images and more will be available on the official website on whilst further coverage will be provided via FIH Twitter, Facebook and Instagram using the hashtags #HJWC2016 and #RockTheJuniors.

NOTE: Canada’s game against England on December 13th will not be streamed online.
